Ready for the Real World? Americans Speak on High School Reform

June 2005

Americans are growing more concerned about the quality of the nation's public high schools, which they say are in need of dramatic improvement to maintain U.S. competitiveness.

Those are among the findings of ETS's fifth annual nationwide survey of Americans' attitudes on key issues in education. The survey, Ready for the Real World? Americans Speak on High School Reform, comes as policymakers focus on high school reform.

The poll was conducted by Democratic pollster Peter Hart and Republican pollster David Winston. Researchers surveyed adults in general, parents of high school students, and high school administrators and teachers.
